A few branding guidelines and FAQs:
What are the name of the Commitments? What is the name of my school’s Commitment?
When referring to all 3 commitments together, we call them the “Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments”. When referring to the specific Commitment your institution signed, it will be either the “Carbon Commitment”, the “Climate Commitment”, or the “Resilience Commitment”. Please do not add the words “Presidents'” or “Leadership” to the name of your commitment (ex: the Climate Leadership Commitment” or the “Presidents’ Climate Commitment”), as these are not accurate.
Example of accurate wording is below:
Ex 1: Narnia Community College is a signatory of the Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments since January 2017.
Ex 2: Narnia Community College is a signatory of the Carbon Commitment since January 2017. The Carbon Commitment is one of 3 Commitments which make up the Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments, a flagship program of the nonprofit Second Nature.
What if my school originally signed the ACUPCC? How do I talk about it?
The easiest way is to refer to your new Commitment name, such as “Carbon Commitment”. If a clarification would be helpful, you can include a parenthesis that reads “originally known as the ACUPCC or the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment”.
Ex: The College of Neverland signed the Carbon Commitment in 2007 (originally known as the ACUPCC) and since then has implemented a multitude of impressive climate initiatives.
Then, what is the Network called? Who is in it?
Any signatory of the Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitments becomes a part of the Climate Leadership Network. You can frame your school’s participation in the Commitments by referring to this too.
Ex: Hogwarts University has been a part of the Climate Leadership Network since 2016, when President Dumbledore signed the Climate Commitment.
